She's also a mother protecting her children. What if revealing this information puts her husband in danger? There are 2 sides to every story. I don't think his dirty laundry is any of my business. As long as the police have all the answers, that's what matters. I don't agree with his mother and sister putting it all out there.
I happen to agree somewhat about protecting her kids. However do you think she was protecting her children while she was stealing others people money and THEiR children's future? I feel his family is desperate to get him back or get answers. That's probably why it took them so long to speak out. Just like she is a mother and watching out for her kids so is his mother! Agreed there is 2 sides to every story and I pray for best possible outcome for this one !

Okay who saw the interview with Roberts mom and sister!!! Seems Ida has been lying and hiding a lot of things!! Police need to step up there game!! This woman has lied soooo much and all these people, myself included trying to help!!! Very very interesting , a drug problem , a missing gun from the house !!!! My mind is blown at how much has been conveinantly left out! I for one am disgusted!!!!!
I am so glad his family is speaking out.
Shotgun missing, big fight the night before, crazy Christmas card, Ida's past unknown to Rob's Sister, Pills-injury from late 90's etc. Watch how Ida's face twitches when MM asks tough questions. It's very telling.

This new info is a complete game changer!
The lies , the inconsistencies, the covering up, her past ( which by the way is not something she did when she was single and in her 20's)- every thing we thought we knew about this case is lies.

I hope she is being straight with LE, although something tells me working with her I like pulling teeth.
And despite all the new info, the most telling new thing brought to light for me, the fact that his family doesn't speak with her. The fact they are together on TV calling her out on countless lies she has told them and the public and getting her to change her story completely.( and that's only the 5 min segment we saw)
Kudos to Robs mom and sister , may they continue to speak out and get answers and hopefully their son/ brother back

I agree.
"The mother and sister of missing, Long Island electrician Robert Mayer contacted PIX 11 News, soon after his wife, Ida, tearfully pleaded for information about his whereabouts."

I am so glad they came forward after seeing the first PIX interview.

Wow on the interview with Rob's mom and sister, a mom always knows when something is wrong with there kids and to see Ida being mad and defensive, see her eyes flicker.
And I agree she knows something, and if you are pleading for your husband to come home she said back in the channel 12 interviews he was not on any kind of drugs and that conversation they had for what over an hour that morning, to see the mom saying how Ida sends a Christmas card like nothing is going on, according to Ida the mom has been so upset, but according to mom they have not really seen each other, after all the interviews this really tops the cake on ida not coming out with the truth,
she did steal a lot of money from people and is a big fat lier and now, maybe the investigators will start checking her out, why are they not doing that and again, how can she afford to live in the house??????

Does anyone remember before she went home that day she was appat her moms or his moms house?

Remember Ida said she was focusing on her kids but noticed Rob had a nervous condition the week before he dissappeared?

I think he got on the train, but where who knows? I am glad after all this time why was the mom and sister never on an interview?

Oops, just read the bottom half of the story "IDA SAYS" if you want answers just ask me, i have answered them from the very first day, "FULL OF SH..!!
Remember, his cell phone, no where to be found!!
Robert was never on any kind of drugs!!
Ida did not mention of any argument the night before!!!
Ida answered to me his wallet was on his dresser and told one of the news that and now she says it was found in the garage!!

Maybe Mary Murphy pix 11 will get to the end of this story, she is great with all the NEW INFO, considering information from mom and sister, they are more reliable, Ida is to much of a fake front, you cannot count on what she says anymore, plus never saw a tear from her eyes yet!!!

The segment on the news was only 4 min. long. I would not doubt the mom and sister gave way more than their " 2 min." of the 4 min. story. You have to remember the news program needs ratings and only gave a us a few points to add the drama.

the mom and the sister appeared very sincere in their emotions. While if you watch the wife in the first interview its tearless crying. the second interview she laughingly scoff's " you want answers? ask me I will give you answers. " to me it sounded like a bazar challenge.

maybe the mom and sister came out to the news because the investigation is getting cold. They need help from the public to find him. this is an open police investigation, how do we even know they were allowed to speak publicly before that interview?

"think he got on the train, but where who knows? I am glad after all this time why was the mom and sister never on an interview? "

I thought I saw the sister in a couple of the earlier interviews with the search parties by the train station.

If i recall correctly she was on the first search or 2... Guess maybe things started going sour with them after that. It's funny how Ida says to ask her, I'm pretty sure they did, I mean wouldn't you? Shady shady things going on I suppose. Either way you dice it , wife is lying to public. Don't ask for help both financially ( which is pretty ballsy on her part to begin with) and time wise if ya can't be somewhat honest.

I mean I can see maybe leaving things out that she felt too private ... But to deny and adamantly at that, is just plain wrong and mean! Like many many others have stated before there is a reason why all of her support is from strangers out of state and not union bros, or his family, or neighbors! Not like they all have a gag order.

IMO, they came forward after watching MM's first interview on PIX which was awesome.
MM was able to get that video at Arrow, interview LE, she got inside the garage with that jacket "conveniently" placed, MM spoke with union (that was odd to me-guys response).

He's in shirtsleeves. It's mid June, no need for that heavy winter jacket, yet there it is.

So, Rob's Mom and sister saw that, didn't "buy it" and decided to contact PIX to set the story straight. They are very credible and I'm so glad they came forward.

Let's remember, we don't know what's going on behind the scenes. His family has been distanced from IM. Probably because they want nothing to do with her. That crazy Christmas card is a clue. They contacted PIX after IM's interview.

Watch her face twitch, it's telling. If you look at all his pics, he has a crease in his brow.
There is no vein popping, he's clearly squinting. Maybe from coming out of sunshine to that little room. His sunglasses on his shirt.

He is squinting, its not a vain. in ID first interview she showed his new glasses he needed to see. Although she didn't say if the were reading glasses or general seeing. but from the picture I would guess reading .

Why, after almost nine months, is Rob's jacket and glasses STILL in the garage? Did't the detectives take it? Did they return it and Ida placed it back in the garage?

you know that is a great point and very odd. almost like she is staging it in the garage. But I never saw anything that said the police took a jacket or glasses.

Ida needs to speak a little more with the truth and I hope the little bit of truth of the missing puzzle from mom and sis will help bring Rob back, and to all those stupid comments on pix 11 that she is protecting her children is a bunch of horse crap.....she did not do that years ago and is not doing that now, she is just protecting herself, the PERFECT WIFE MOM, give me a break. Maybe she can go on Dr. Phil and he can get the lye detector out and have some real answers...

WHO'S IS PAYING HER MORTGAGE BY NOW, since they had a hard time when Rob was working?

Not sure why all of Rob's stuff left in the garage and not in for evidence maybe check for different finger prints if someone else was involved.

WE NEED ANSWERS.......WHERE ARE YOU ROB?

No. The detectives maybe didn't take the jacket and glasses but i am sure they at least looked at it. So for NINE MONTHS they sat there? Ha! That is ridiculous.

Some more staging to make things appear a certain way. Hogwash.
